SCREENING + TALK: CASCADE VOICES
SCREENING + TALK
Saturday, November 6, 2pm
Broadcast from the Screaming Yellow truck, this screening displays a series of films called Cascade Voices, by Michigan based artist Rey Jeong, which invites young diasporic individuals to share unspoken stories and to discover shared narratives or co-empowerment. A total of 18 people—Asian, LatinX and Middle Eastern—appear in Cascade Voices. Four or five people sit in a circle and have a conversation while Jeong video-documents their interactions. Very little instruction is given until the end of the discussion when each participant asks a question directly into the camera. The next group starts their conversation by responding to the questions posed by the previous group. Participants asked future groups, “Have you been racist to someone of your own race?” and “What can you do for the future generation to break the cycle of silence.” By using questions as bridges, Cascade Voices creates unending dialogue.
Join MOCAD to view an experiential archive of AAPI voices and talk by Rey Jeong and exhibiting artist Jane Jin Kaisen. Parallax Conjectures by Jane Jin Kaisen is currently on view.
